Glasgow’s Haunted Theatre Royal
MANDY COLLINS investigates the spooky Theatre Royal in Glasgow – one of the city’s oldest and most famous entertainment venues
Walking past a theatre in Glasgow, I can’t help but say to my husband, “That’s haunted.” He’s probably been told The Theatre Royal has a ghost every time we pass. There are lots of theatres in Glasgow: the city was notorious for having the hardest audiences in the country to play for. Unpopular artistes would be belted off stage with rotten fruit. And it being an industrial city, rivets from the shipyards would be included in the fruity barrage. Having seen an old riveter’s kit, I really wouldn’t want to be hit by one!
